What is Self Defence?
Self defence is a set of awareness, assertiveness, verbal confrontation skills, safety strategies, and physical techniques that enable someone to successfully escape, resist, and survive violent attacks. It also involves the right mindset, understanding one’s surroundings, and believing in one’s physical power. At Apex MMA, located near Collaroy in the heart of the Northern Beaches, we’ve blended martial arts disciplines like Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), and MMA to craft a self-defence system that is practical, effective, and suited to modern day scenarios.
Embrace the Power of Muay Thai, BJJ and MMA
At Apex MMA, we believe that a well-rounded self-defence system can’t be based on a single discipline. That’s why we offer training in Muay Thai, BJJ, and MMA. Muay Thai, also known as the “Art of Eight Limbs”, harnesses your body’s natural weapons, like fists, elbows, knees, and shins. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a martial art based on ground fighting and submission holds, teaches you how to use your opponent’s strength against them. MMA, or Mixed Martial Arts, combines various techniques from different martial arts styles. Together, these disciplines form a holistic self-defence system.
Adding to this potent mix are principles from Krav Maga, a martial art developed for the Israeli military, emphasizing real-world situations and practical defences. These elements are woven into our training to equip you with the tools needed to defend yourself and your loved ones.
The Apex MMA Coaching Dream Team
Our coaching team at Apex MMA boasts an exceptional wealth of knowledge. Nick Pudney, a second-degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Thai boxer, and MMA black belt, shares his knowledge with students with unmatched enthusiasm.

Last but not least, Chad Lumley, an expert in diverse styles, from traditional martial arts to freestyle fighting, imparts his experience to fighters and beginners alike, all while incorporating his Hapkido background.
